The localization team is often the core of a company’s global success. In this panel discussion, we will cover how to build, grow, or transform a group of employees into an energized, collaborative, and self-sufficient team. We’ll cover hiring, working with recruiters, and whether to hire for skills needed now or tomorrow. Localization teams may include a variety of roles, so we’ll discuss hiring generalists or specialists, and balancing localization experts, people from outside the industry, and new college graduates.
